“I like EMISYNTH. Has a lot of cool textures. I imagine I’ll find some uses for it layering with other sounds. I can also see it having its uses for scoring. It’s also a great starting off point for LOFI trap leads.”

A Unique Collectable Library of Synthesizers that Keeps a Print of Time

In this library, Strix Instruments have collected eleven unique Soviet children's synthesizers, which have survived to this day: the age of these instruments is from 30 to 50 years! The sound recording was done from the original speakers of these instruments; thus, the sound is as intended by the designers. It feels like Strix Instruments have put an entire era in a few gigabytes of data.

Imperfect yet Extraordinary

Time and various storage conditions have left their mark on the sound of these synths. Each of them has aged in its own way, which influenced the analogue elements of the instrument and the final sound, which acquired a variety of artefacts. Strix Instruments carefully preserved the characteristic shade of each note for your inspiration and creativity.

Eleven Synthesizers for the Price of One

If you wanted to get the same collection of synthesizers you would spend months in search for them at auctions and from $100 per instrument. Instead, Strix Instruments offer you more than a dozen of synths for the price of one! Moreover, all the instruments are already digitized and recorded in excellent quality.

Find a New Sound in Old Instruments

Strix Instruments don't know the story of these instruments, but they believe that with the help of their sound you can tell your own story! Looking for a piercing, bright, but at the same time pleasant sound? You have come to the right address. Each of these synthesizers will attract attention in a mix, adding a confident and distinctive sound to the track. With the help of fine-tuning knobs embedded in the library, you can independently control each tool.

Beautiful and Intuitive Interface

Strix Instruments did their best to provide you with maximum control over each tool and to keep the library beautiful and easily manageable. Switch between synthesizers, immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the 80s, create great synthwave or experiment with other genres of music.

Sound from the 80's Flavoured with Time and Radiation

Strix Instruments are here not only to give you the experience of playing the soviet synthesizer but to immerse you into the actual atmosphere of the '80s. To do that, Strix Instruments went to the Chernobyl exclusion zone - the only place on Earth that doomed forever for 1986. Exploring the radioactive streets and buildings, Strix Instruments collected some special Impulse Responses collection for Convolution Reverb.

Free Updates in the Future

Strix Instruments are happy to confirm that you can expect future updates with new synthesizers for free. It is a truly collectable library.
